Rented a Glock 43 to compare to my G36. The 36 has fed everything I've tried. Both were totally reliable, including one handed and weak hand shooting. The G43 made smaller groups.
They both recoil about the same with standard ammo. 45 ACP 230 grain have noticeably more recoil than a 185. The 43 is a lot slimmer than the 36. Might buy a 43 for summer carry.

I find my 43 extremely accurate, even at 20 yards and considering the short sight radius. The only changes I have made are night sights and a tungsten guide rod to reduce muzzel flip. Love it!

I like my 43 for what it’s for, up close personal defense with ease of carry and concealment. Also like my 19/4 for occasional carry in cold weather and it is accurate. Neither are as accurate as my Walthers: P99/9mm or ppk/s .380, but I carry the Glocks for ease of use and reliability, not to hit range target centers at 25 yards. I actually like my 19 better than 43, but it is harder to conceal, and I prefer to carry my 43 AIWB. I’ve never been a fan of .45 cal.
19 totally stock, 43 is stock except for Talon rubber grips.

My 43 has the worst trigger of any Glock I have ever owned.
Heavy pull and trigger slap. Not happy.
The early 43's did not have the best trigger, for sure. Glock came out with a new connector which cures the problem. I had mine replaced and now the trigger on my 43 is as good as any of my other Glocks, and maybe better than most of them. I added a set of Trijicon HD sights and it is now a great shooter.

I only own 2 and thats what they are, 36 has a crimson trace, both have glock night sights, and pierce +1,hough on the 43.
I carry the 43,the 36 rides with me in the truck when i’m working, accuracy and dependibility i’ve found to be the same. Recoil is what it is
